Picture: Dimitri Payet pays tribute to West Ham legend Sir Bobby Moore

Dimitri Payet continues to settle into life at West Ham.

 

Dimitri Payet is already well on his way to becoming a hero for the ages at West Ham, but he has a long way to go to match Sir Bobby Moore.

The Frenchman is surely acutely aware of this, and even more impressively, shows he cares about the club and it's legends.

Yesterday was the 23rd anniversary of Sir Bobby Moore's death, and Payet showed his respect by posting a message on social media.

Moore was England's World Cup winning captain in 1966, and played for West Ham between 1958 and 1974, also captaining the Hammers.

The Mail yesterday reported West Ham's new home the Olympic Stadium will have a commemorative stone outside as a tribute to Moore.

Summer signing Payet has little to prove on the pitch after a superb debut season for the Hammers, and his actions off it show he really is a class act all round.
